There is a general tendency among people that Basic 5 pillars of Islam & 6/7 Articles of Faith are not the part of Quran but it’s a Hadith.

I went through the holy book Quran and got a very conspicuous confirmation where every segments of these ‘’Basic Principal and Faiths’’ have been defined well and there are related Surah and Verses where Al Mighty Allah has explained it at multiple places in Quran but just there should be a mission and vision from us to see it that whether such clauses has been covered or not. 

May Al Mighty Allah bless us strength and motivation to read the Quran with translation so that we may not live in darkness or in any ambiguity - every thing in this divined book is very transparent and comprehensive to conceive well and to follow to comply & be faithful to our Creator.

The religion of Islam is the acceptance and obedience to teaching of Allah which He revealed to His last Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him.

Islam is the Religion which Allah choose for mankind He said; ‘’ the religion that is accepted by Allah is Islam’’3; 19

The witness of faith in Allah

Surah Al E Imran verse 19
The Religion before Allah is Islam (submission to His Will) nor did the people of the Book Dissent therefrom except through envy of each other. After knowledge had come to them but if any deny the Signs of Allah, Allah is swift in calling to account.

Surah Al E Imran verse 85
If anyone desires a religion other than Islam (submission to Allah) Never will it be accepted of him and in the Hereafter he will be in the ranks of those who have lost (all spiritual good)

Surah Al Baqarah verse 2
O ye people adore your Guardian Lord who created you and those who came before you that ye may have the chance to learn righteous.

Every single segment have been mandated in the Holy book Quran that revealed to Muhammad peace be upon him - there are concerned Verses that defines its importance and involvement of the Believers i.e. Muslims – a mandatory duties of Muslim to follow & adopt otherwise on the day of Judgment he/ she will be interrogated if not performed in letter and spirit.

There are multiple verses in support of Five Pillars and six/ seven Articles Of Faith thats have been mentioned in the Quran throughout its 114 Surah or among its 30 part.

Five pillars of Islam is known as
(a) The witness of faith Allah
(b) Prayers – Salat
(c) The poor due or obligatory charity –Zakat
(d) Fasting (Saum)
(e) The Pilgrimage (Hajj)

Articles of Faith
(a) Belief in Allah
(b) Belief in Angels
(c)  Belief in His Books
(d) Believe in His Messengers
(e) Belief in Last Day
(f)  Belief in divine Preordainment and Divine Decrees (Qada & Qadar)

A very categorical divine rules in the holy Quran which is not deniable or from any point of view to be compromised otherwise the Faith or the entry in Islam will be incomplete unless we believe in all whole heartedly on above pillars and faith.

Allah says in Surah Al Nisa verse 136 where it says
Ö ye who believe! Believe in Allah And His Messengers, And the scriptures which He has sent to His Messenger And the scripture which He sent To those before (him), Any who deny Allah, His Angles, His Books, His Messengers, and the Day of Judgement has gone far, Far astray.
The above verses covers all.

Further says in Surah Al Nisa verse 162
But those among them who are well grounded in knowledge, And the believers, Believe in what has been revealed to thee and what was Revealed before thee, And (especially) those Who establish Regular prayer and practice Regular Charity, And believe in Allah And the Last Day; To them shall we soon give a great reward.

No one can be a Muslim or can claim to be a Muslim unless he/ she believes in these 5 & 6/7 essential rules and practices them sincerely.

Belief in Allah
Surah Ikhlas verse 1 to 4, He is Allah the one, Allah to whom the creatures turn for their needs. He begets not, nor was He begotten and there is none like Him.

Surah Al Taghabun verse 13
Allah! There is no god but He and on Allah, therefore let the Believers put their trust.

Surah Al Taghabun verse 18
Knower of what is hidden and what is open, Exalted in, Might, Full of wisdom
Belief in Angels
Surah Al Baqarah verse 285 .The messenger believe in what has revealed to him from his Lord, as do the men of faith. Each one of them believe in ALLAH - HIS ANGELS - HIS BOOKS AND - HIS MESSENGERS

We make no distinction (they say) between one and another of His messengers and they say we hear and we obey; (We seek) Thy forgiveness, Our Lord and to Thee is the end of all journey.

Surah Al Tahrim verse 6
Allah has created the Angels from light they are honorable slaves of Allah who obey Him an execute His commands Allah describes them
‘’ they never disobey Allah in what He commands them and they do as they are commanded’’

Belief in Allah’s  Revealed Books
Surah Al E Imran verse 84
We believe in Allah and in what has been revealed to us and what was revealed to Abraham, Ismael; Isaac, Jacob and the Tribes, and (the Books) given to Moses, Jesus and the Prophets from their Lord; we make no distinction between one and another among and then them and to Allah do we bow our will (in Islam).

Surah Al Baqarah verse 2/3/4
This is the book (Quran) in it is guidance sure, without doubt, to those who fear Allah – who believe in the unseen (God) are steadfast in prayer (Namaz) and spend out of what we (God) have provided for them – and who believe in the revelation (Quran) sent to you (Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him) and sent before you, and (in their hearts) have the assurance of the hereafter (the day of judgement)
Surah Al Baqarah verse 136
Say you! We believe in Allah and the revelation given to us and to Abraham; Ismail; Isaac; Jacob and the Tribes and that given Moses & Jesus and that given to all Prophets from their Lord; We make no difference between one and another of them; And we bow to Allah (in Islam)

 Surah Al Hijr verse 9
Indeed we have sent down the Quran and surely we will guard it (from corruption)

Belief in the Prophets and Messengers of Allah
Surah An-Nahl verse 36
For assuredly sent among st every people a Messenger (with the command) “serve Allah and eschew evil’’ of the people were some whom Allah guided and some on whom Error became inevitably (established). So travel through the earth and see what the end of those who denied the truth.

Muslims believe in Prophets and Messengers of Allah starting with Adam including Noah, Abraham, Ismael, Isaac, Jacob Moses and Jesus (peace be upon them) But Allah’s final message to man, a reconfirmation of the eternal message, was revealed to the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), Muslims believe that Muhammad is the last prophet sent by Allah
Surah AN Nisa verse 165
Messengers who gave good news as well as warning. That mankind, after (the coming) of the Messengers, should have no plea against Allah; For Allah is exalted in Power, Wise.

Belief in the day of Judgement & resurrection
Surah Al Rahman verse 26 & 27
All that is on earth will perish – But will abide (forever) the face of thy Lord Full of Majesty, Bounty and Honor.

Surah Al Anbiya verse 34 & 35
We granted not to any man before thee permanent life (Here) if then thou should die, would they live permanently? – Every soul shall have a taste of death; and we test you by evil and by good, by way of trial. To us must ye return?

Surah Al Zumar verse 68 & 70 (the day of Judgement)
The trumpet will just be sounded, when all that are in the heavens and on earth will swoon (extremely excited and unable to control), except such as it will please Allah (to exempt), Then will a second one be sounded, when, behold, they will be standing and looking on!
And to ever soul will be paid in full (the fruit) of its deeds; and Allah know best all they do.

Belief in Allah
Surah Al Fatiha verse 1 ,2,& 3
Praise be to Allah the cherish-er and Sustain-er of the world – Most Gracious – Most Merciful – Master of the day of Judgement.

Surah Al Bqarah verse 29
It is He Who created for you all things that are on earth; moreover His design comprehended the heavens for He gave order and perfection to the seven firmaments; and of all things He has perfect knowledge.

Surah Al Baqarah verse 21/ 22
O ye people! Adore your guardian Lord who created you and those who came before you that ye may have the chance to learn righteous – Who has made the earth you couch and the heavens your canopy and sent down rain from the heaven and brought forth therewith fruits for your sustenance then se t not up rivals unto Allah when you know (the truth)..

Surah Al Baqarah verse 107
Know you not that to Allah belong the dominion of the heaven and the earth? And besides Him you have neither patron nor helper 

Salat (NAMAZ) & Charity (ZAKAT)
Surah Al Baqarah verse 43
And be steadfast in prayer (NAMAZ); Practice regular charity (ZAKAT) and bow down you r heads with those who bow down (in worship).

Surah Al Baqarah verse 110.
And be steadfast in prayer (NAMAZ) and regular in charity (ZAKAT); and whatever good you send forth for your souls before you, you shall find it with Allah; for Allah sees well all that you do

Surah AN Nisa verse 103 (NAMAZ)
When ye pass (Cong rational) prayers, celebrate Allah’s praises standing, sitting down, or lying down on your sides; but when ye free from danger set up regular prayers, for such prayers are enjoined on believers at stated times.

Surah AL Ankabut verse 45 (NAMAZ)
Recite what is sent of the book by inspiration to thee, and establish regular prayer; for prayer restraints from shameful and unjust deeds; and remembrance of Allah is the greatest (thing in life) without doubt and Allah knows the deeds that ye do.  

Surah Al Tauba verse 103 (ZAKAT)
Of their goods, take alms; That so thou mightiest purify and sanctify them; and pray on their behalf, Verily thy prayers are a source of security for them and Allah is one who hears and knows.

Surah Al Tauba verse 11 (NAMAZ & ZAKAT)
But (even so) if they repent, establish regular prayers and practice regular charity, they are your brethren in faith. Thus do we explain the signs in detail for those who understand?

Fasting (Saum)
Surah Al Baqarah verse 183, 184 & 185.
O Ye believe! Fasting is prescribed to you as it was prescribed to those before you that ye may (learn) self-restraint.

Fasting for a fixed number of days; but if any of you is ill or on a journey, the prescribed number (should be made up) from days later; for those who can do it (with hardship), is a ransom. The feeding of one that is indigent. But he that will give more, of his own free will. It is better for him. And it is better for you that ye fast, if ye only knew.

The pilgrimage (Hajj)
Surah Al E Imran verse 97
In it are signs of manifest; (for example) the station of Abraham; whoever enters if attains security; Pilgrimage thereto is a duty Men owe to Allah those who can afford the journey; but if any deny faith, Allah stands not in need of any of his creatures.

Surah Al Baqarah verse 196, 197 , 198 & 200 (HAJJ)
And complete the Hajj or umrah in the service of Allah, but if ye are prevented (from completing it) send an offering for sacrifice, such as ye may find, and do not shave your heads until the offering reaches the pace of sacrifice. And if any of you is ill, or has an ailment in his scalp, (necessitating shaving) he should in compensation either fast, or feed the poor. Or offer sacrifice; And when ye are in peaceful conditions (again), if anyone wishes to continue the umrah On the Hajj, He must make an offering such as he can afford, But if cannot afford it, He should fast three days during the Hajj and seven days on his return, making  a ten days in all. This is for those whose household is not in the precincts of the sacred mosque. And fear Allah and know that Allah is strict in punishment.

Belief in divine Preordainment and Divine Decrees (Qada & Qadar)
Doom (Qada) is the general decree of Allah that every human will die whereas a divine decree (Qadar) is a particular decree of Allah or the execution of Qada that certain person is to die at a particular time and place hence believing in this article of faith entails believing that Allah has created everything and has ordained its proper measure.
